    Moto Droid, 2.1. No other mail apps.

    Yahoo mail hardly ever works on my phone. Even on 3G 99 times out of 100 I'll get 'password incorrect'. I was laying in the bed this morning and it finally pissed me off, so I deleted my account (from the @EMail app) and tried to put it back.

    'password incorrect'.

    I tried to open the browser, go to mail.yahoo.com and log in

    'password incorrect'.

    WTF? I get out of bed (thinking I locked my account or something) stumble over to my desktop, clear my cache, and login to yahoo mail just fine.

    I go back to the droid, the browser still has the login info I tried last time; I hit 'login' and it works like a charm.

    Also, the account login page still has the info. 'Next' and it works like a charm, without retyping anything.

    Does anyone else have these spotty ****ty login issues?

    Does yahoo! mail work perfectly for anyone?

    Thanks in advance!

    I noticed this issue when I tried to connect to the Yahoo imap account while hooked up to wifi. Yahoo imap only works over 3G. Could this be what you're observing?

    Edit: duh, never mind. You already said it's on 3G too. Sorry!

    I use k-9 from the market to manage my yahoo account. I too had problems with the stock email app. Since k9 I have had zero issues!
